I decided to spray paint them both "Heirloom White". Here is a picture after painting them as I was letting them dry:
Next I decided to lightly sand the pitcher around the embossed design and edges to reveal the metal underneath to help show-off the detailing:
I decided to put them on my desk in the guest bedroom. Here is an after of the vase, I just love the cutout design around the top! It is now my knitting needle holder :o)
And here is the pitcher, all it needs now are some fresh flowers from the garden :o)
Overall, I really like how they turned out, especially the pitcher. It's better than I I had expected!
